Abstract:
Improving Students' Communication and Collaboration Skills: Learning to Negotiate with a Mentor Leader in Health Care
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Grossman, Sheila Carey, APRN, FNP, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:Fairfield University
Title:Professor & Nurse Practitioner
Purpose - It is essential that nursing education provide opportunities with 1. Negotiation (Nurses must become competent in creating new strategies to provide health care using scarce resources wisely, participating in the discussion of health policy development, and partnering with others); 2. Broad Thinking (Nurses must focus not only on competent provision of direct patient care but also on the broad issues of care delivery); and 3. Communication & Collaboration (Nurses need to learn to network with community agencies, share expertise and resources, and assist in establishing health policy with agency staff). Mentorship - Students were able to experience first-hand the daily activities of a health care leader in one of the following areas: Patient Advocacy, Health Education, Entrepreneurship, Quality Improvement, Health Care Policy, and Hospital/Home Care/Agency Administration. This mentorship experience enhanced students' knowledge of the health care system, increased their confidence and scope of thinking, and further developed their communication and collaboration skills. Mentorship Development - Strategies for developing a mentorship policy, clinical objectives, mentor selection, and outcome evaluation tools will also be presented.
